Diving on the Red Sea Aggressor

Recommended Posts

Here are a few of the better pics from my recent liveaboard trip on the Red Sea Aggressor. I learned a LOT as I practiced, and I can't wait for the next trip, so that I can learn even more!

I would love it if someone could tell me what this fish is. I assume it is some type of triggerfish??

I would also really like to know what this guy is? He is awfully cute, is he a baby grouper???

Hi Basil

 

Nice pics. Where were you in the Red Sea? If you get the chance, head down to the southern end: St John's and Furys. Really good down there.

 

The last pic is a Forster's Hawkfish - common in the Red Sea - otherwise known as Paracirrhites forsteri. 14 is an Orangespine Surgeon fish - Naso lituratus

I was on the southern itinerary of the Red Sea Aggressor, so I think we got to St John's. Thank you for the compliment, and for letting me know what my unidentified fish were!!! I updated my Flickr gallery with the species names.

Your second unknown fish is a Forster's Hawkfish: if you have a close-up you might see the characteristic fan at the end of each dorsal fin ray. They love to swim off just as you focus...
